Offered for sale is a still sealed U.S. picture disc edition of 14 Greatest Hits by Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5.
This picture disc includes both a poster and a single white glove. The glove was not included in all copies of the album.
About this copy: This copy of 14 Greatest Hits is an original 1984 U.S. pressing on the Motown label.
As the album is sealed, the record is presumably unplayed.
The cover has a saw mark in the lower left-hand corner. The wrap is fully intact with no rips, tears, or holes, except for a small break where the cover is cut.
The glove is clearly visible, and the cover says that a poster is included. The poster should be inside the cover behind the disc.
A nice copy of a scarce Michael Jackson oddity and the first copy we’ve had for sale in many years.
Background: Michael Jackson and his brothers, recording as the Jackson 5, left Motown Records in 1975 to sign with Epic.
They were successful after the label change, and Michael Jackson had huge hits with his Off the Wall and Thriller LPs.
After the split, Motown repackaged and reissued a number of earlier recordings by both Michael and the Jackson 5 to capitalize on their new success at Epic.
In 1984, at the height of Michael Jackson mania, Motown released 14 Greatest Hits, an album containing the best-known solo and group tracks from the Motown years.
While the album was released as a regular LP, it was also issued as a limited edition picture disc LP that included a poster and a single glove, which had by that time become Michael’s best-known piece of apparel.
The album did not sell particularly well, peaking at #184 on the U.S. album charts, and was soon deleted.
